After spending his entire career with the 미네소타 바이킹스, Rudolph joins the 뉴욕 자이언츠 this season with hopes of helping restore the franchise to its former glory — and he sees promise in both the new faces in the locker room and a familiar leadership.
Rudolph, 31, spoke with Fox News in a phone interview on Wednesday about his upcoming season with the Giants and how he’s acclimated to Joe Judge’s “오래된 학교” style of coaching.
“It’s something that I’m very familiar with,” 그는 말했다. “I played for coach Charlie Weis [Patriots offensive coordinator 2000-2004] at Notre Dame so I was introduced to the 뉴잉글랜드 way of doing things as an 18-year-old kid. So I’ve been around it before. I’ve always had such respect and adoration for the success that that organization has had and certainly [판사] played a big part in it.”
The two-time Pro Bowler told Fox News that his decision to come to New York was made simple by Judge’s reputation.
“I talked to a lot of the older guys on the team, the decision-makers in the locker room, they all bought in immediately … The culture that [Judge’s] built here is a big reason why I’m here,” 그는 말했다. “At this point in my career, going into year 11, I had plenty of opportunities to go places where I knew I could win right away, knew that they had a chance to contend for a title and I picked here because of the culture and because of Joe and everything he’s built.”
